We have served up another hot Fantastic Four transformation for the ever-popular, redesigned 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. The mods 714 Motorsports put on this vehicle would also work for the Tahoe's cousin, the Yukon, and include a 1.5/2.5-inch drop from Ground Force Suspensions, Green High Performance Filter intake system, MagnaFlow exhaust, Toyo Proxes S/T tires, and 24-inch Eco Type 802-TAZ wheels. This was a short and simple set of installs. Let's get to them.

From The Driver Seat:Intake: The filter and the mass airflow assembly fit together through the heat shield, although it was a little awkward to get it right. Otherwise, it was a pretty standard installation.
Exhaust: This was easy as pie, and sounds pretty good, too.
Suspension: This was very simple, since it was essentially about replacing springs and shocks. There was no cutting involved.
Wheels and Tires: The Toyo tires and Eco wheels are a good-looking package on this vehicle.
